Someday is not a day of the week

Congratulations to Julian and his family!!

They say: kind people are the best kind of people to know and and that quote reminds me of Julian. He was referred to me by my fantastic preferred lender and I’m so glad I met him! He was great to work with and I’m thrilled we could get him into the house he had his eye on. 

Julians home buying story is a simple one really… Julian saw a house for sale down the street from where he was living and he took a shot at making it his own! First things first, he went out and got pre-approved (everyone should be taking notes here! Ha!) The house was well loved although it had a few quirks. He was a very diligent buyer, kept an open mind through inspections and in the end both sides were able to see eye to eye in order to seal the deal!  

The house is super cute, the yard is completely dialed in with lovely landscaping and he will be enjoying blueberries, raspberries and flowers from his garden. I hope Julian and his family have a great summer hanging out in the amazing yard and patio!
